Bidwells was instructed to obtain full planning application for a new school, Pix Brook
Academy in Stotfold, comprising a 8,980 sq m main school building, 163 car parking spaces, 267 cycle parking spaces, bus/coach parking spaces, pick-up/ drop-off vehicle loop, sports
hall, netball and tennis courts, football pitches, athletics track and games areas.
As part of the H B Allen Centre project , this award-winning development is currently the largest student accommodation project in the UK. The former Acland hospital site was converted into 255 student rooms, offers 2,500 sq m of high-end research space in the basement, as well as world-class conferencing facilities.
Following on from the dilapidations process and subsequent refurbishment of the buildings, Bidwells advised on the likely works and expenditure required to maintain the building over the next 15 years.
